Since its invention in the 17th century, optical microscopy has revolutionized biomedical studies by scrutinizing the biological realm on cellular levels, taking advantage of its excellent light-focusing capability. However, most biological tissues scatter light highly. As light travels in tissue, cumulative scattering events cause the
Liang Song (firstname.lastname@example.org) is currently a professor and the director of the Research Lab for Biomedical Optics and the Shenzhen Key Lab for Molecular Imaging at the Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology (SIAT), Chinese Academy of Sciences. Prior to joining SIAT, he studied at Washington University in St. Louis and received his Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering in 2010 under the tutelage of Lihong V. Wang. His current research at SIAT focuses on developing novel microscopic and endoscopic imaging systems and optical/ultrasonic multimodality imaging technologies for the diagnosis and therapy guidance of cancer and cardiovascular atherosclerosis.
